[Bug 8396] clip() is fine, but why isn't there something like a stencil buffer? It's similar to clip except you turn on the stencil then render an image and only where you rendered the image are pixels rendered to the canvas.

Can you elaborate on what use case you have in mind here exactly? What you
describe in comment 0 sounds like it could be done using just clip(). Stencil
buffers as described in wikipedia have a variety of use cases but it's not
clear which would be really that applicable here.
